Russian Armed Forces columns continue to move through the territory of Belarus (1, 2, 3, 4). The columns mostly consist of Ural and KamAZ trucks. There are also fuel trucks, PAZ buses, trailers, cranes, armored vehicles, and off-road vehicles of various modifications.
We can distinguish the following routes of columns’ movements:
- Babruisk- Asipovichy- Minsk;
Thus, movements of military equipment remain primarily in the southeastern area of Gomel region.
The movement and transportation of fighting vehicles of the Russian Armed Forces was recorded. For example, trailers carrying MT-LB were spotted in Gomel. A convoy of trailers carrying tanks was seen on the Yelsk-Mazyr route. A column of 20 tanks and 14 trucks was seen in Khoiniki. Transportation of PTS-2 transport was seen in Minsk. 4 trailers with BMP-2 and PTS-2 were moving from Kalinkavichy to Yelsk (Naroulya).
Flight activity was recorded at military airfields in Belarus. 6 fighters and 2 IL-76 transport aircraft departed from Baranavichy (presumably to Russia), one IL-76 landed for unloading. One flight as recorded in Luninets. 7 Russian helicopters (including Mi-8, Mi-24) flew from Machulishchy to Shatalovo airfield (Smolensk oblast, Russia), 2 Russian Mi-26 helicopters flew to Seshcha airfield (Bryansk oblast, Russia) and 2 transport IL-76 also took off.
There was an intensive movement of Russian Armed Forces equipment by rail. For example, two trains were seen at Kalinkavichy railway station: one was loaded, the second was in the process of loading. Some of the military personnel seen there earlier left Kalodzishchy railway station. A train loaded with military equipment was seen at Khoiniki railway station. Two trains (20 cars each) with equipment of the Russian Armed Forces were seen at Aziaryshcha railway station (Minsk district).
A train with empty platforms was moving from Gomel-Nechetny station to Gomel-North station. Also, a train with empty flatcars was moving from Gomel-Passenger station. A train with military equipment was moving from Gomel-North station, later it was seen at Prybor station (Gomel district). Also, a train with military equipment arrived at Gomel-Chetny station. Ural trucks, KamAZ trucks, fuel trucks, and 122-mm Grad MLRS were seen among the vehicles.
A train with military equipment was seen at the railway station in Rechitsa. There were BMP-2, KamAZ and Ural trucks, and T-72B3 tanks on the flatcars. The following equipment was seen near the station, waiting for further loading: Tor missile systems and their transport loading vehicles, MT-LB, T-72B3, and Shilka M2 SPAAG. Later, the equipment was loaded onto the train. In the evening, Tor-M2 system and trucks were still near the railway station, while the rest of the equipment was loaded onto the flatcars. A train with military equipment was also passing through the station on its way to Gomel.
We observed loading of military equipment at the railway stations in Ziabrauka (Gomel district), Yelsk (here and here), and Aziaryshcha (Minsk). Also, a convoy of trailers carrying BMP-2 for loading was moving to the railway station in Kozenki (here and here) (Mazyr district).
No strikes on the territory of Ukraine from the territory of Belarus with tactical missile systems were recorded.
Minor movements of equipment of the Armed Forces of Belarus were recorded. For example, a column of Belarusian trucks carrying 122-mm Grad multiple rocket launchers was seen in Mazyr. About 15 MAZ and Ural trucks were seen in Khoiniki. 5 trucks carrying ammunition were seen on the Rechitsa-Gomel route. Also, a column of trailers of the Belarusian Armed Forces, one of which was carrying a 9S15M radar, was seen on the Mazyr-Gomel route.
